new in the shop: chamomile cards

In the fall, Jon and I would end the day with a nice cup of chamomile tea while we curled up on the couch together. We found some chamomile seeds to plant this spring, and we are excited to see the dainty flowers grow soon. Send a comforting hello with a stitched up chamomile card, now in the shop!

first day of spring skirt

Its the first day of spring, but the weather is playing it cool and acting like its not a big deal. I think a thunderstorm is predicted for later. But our newly planted seeds need some water anyway!

My second skirt for the upcoming season is this floral creation. I’ve already worn it a couple times. The pattern is super simple, and I added a little roundness to the hem in the back. A perfect breezy skirt for when it finally decides to be springtime.

the strawberry patch

We added a strawberry patch to the garden! Isn’t it just the cutest little patch you ever did see.

We made the planter ourselves with our creative gardening skills. I really wanted a tiered circular planter, to add some visual interest to the garden. We had a hard time finding one that fit my landscape vision, so we made our own using some garden edging. Now its perfect.

a new skirt

After spending a week in the sunny, almost spring of the northwest, its kind of a bummer to come to the cold, drizzly south. But at least I have this new skirt for sunnier thoughts. Its my first time sewing a knit, and it actually went pretty smoothly. The bottom of the skirt is a flowy, cascading shape, so I had to model it to show it off. I’m looking forward to wearing more skirts this spring!
